I will need more details of your vehicle so, I can look into the problem and then call you.

I would advise that you get an injector leak-off test done when the engine is hot and also monitor the fuel rail pressure whilst driving to see if the required pressure is being maintained.

If everything is ok, then you will need to get a cylinder compression test carried out, to see if the cylinders are properly sealed when the engine is hot.
